Amy Archambault's curator insight, May 12, 2015 12:12 PM

Great questions to ask when deciding how to be a change agent...I personally felt this would be my #1 set of questions and go from there..."Second, and this is the big question to keep in mind, what’s best for the kids? We need to keep this at the forefront of our thinking. What do our students really need to help them become informationally and digitally literate? What will be most helpful for students to know and be able to do to be successful consumers and creators of information? How will we empower teachers to best serve our students?"
